Dudnick Detwiler Rivin & Stikker LLP's real estate practice spans the entire range of our clients' needs for advice regarding real property matters. We have substantial experience representing investors, developers, fiduciaries, consultants, financial institutions, brokers, property managers, pension fund advisors and design professionals. We excel at the "nuts-and-bolts" of our "bricks-and-mortar" practice, which gives us a solid "foundation" from which to advise regarding some more unusual deals and structures, such as joint ventures, participating loans, equity leases, ground leases, surplus public property, brownfields and land use. To serve the client fully, we call on our colleagues within the firm for their tax, estate planning and trust, general business and litigation expertise, and we look outside when specialized environmental, bankruptcy, accounting or other expertise is required. « Less
